Years ago the connector wire became unplugged behind the steering wheel. If it makes sense, it's in a "wheel" that spins so that when you turn the wheel it feeds out more electrical wire.
Anyways, if the cruise control pod lights in the steering wheel arent lit, itmight be that. The fix was pretty easy, there may even be a guide on here. Only took a while although going behind the airbag is always a touch scary.
